According to Deadline, Jordan Peele’s latest film, Us began production today in California. Prior to rolling, it was announced that Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Madison Curry, Cali Sheldon, and Noelle Sheldon have joined the cast.
The newcomers will join the previously announced Tim Heidecker, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, and Elisabeth Moss.
Peele’s Get Out exceeded expectations earning $255 million worldwide on a $4.5 million budget. The film received 39 major nominations in 2018, winning 17 awards including the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Can Us have the same success as Peele’s freshman feature? The top brass at Universal certainly hope so but only time will tell.
